Trying a combo of Xidra and doxycline

Just had an eye swab 2 weeks ago, and it was a gram negative bacterial infection -- something that has been chronic for YEARS. And this wasn't...

I'm trying the blood in eye treatment!

I've been a dry eye sufferer for ten years now. For the first couple of years I had a hell coping. The main reason for this was that I looked at screens constantly and rarely took breaks. Today I only use screens during daytime, with breaks every 20 minutes and my eyes feel much better. I experience...


The question might sound dumb but Can it be possible that i might be getting dry eye and mgd due to me having a dog inside my house. My eyes feel dry all the time even when I'm not home my dry eyes didn't start until after a year of owning him so i really doubt it but i wanted some opinions...
